    You’re right most people do visit Antalya for its gorgeous beaches and I had no clue it was a place with major cultural significance. I would really love to understand how their old traditional houses were like at İnan Kıraç Kaleiçi Müzesi and find hidden waterfalls that away from the tourist track. Your post makes it easier for tourists like me to move away from the usual stuff and see a different side of Turkey! I think it is time to pay Turkey a visit, I always thought it was too touristy and this post proves why it is not!

    I love reading blog posts to find new spots to visit. I never heard of Antalya with its stunning beaches. And to find a beach not crowded with tourists is magical. And to find it has the best snorkelling and scuba diving is a bonus. So interesting to find such a large theatre ruins too. Good to know that the Çığlıkara Nature Reserve has lots of offer. In addition to preserving the cedar trees. It would be great to visit the hidden waterfall. But I definitely would be taking a jeep. Thanks for introducing this lovely spot to me.

    This is a great post for me, as I’m planning on visiting Turkey next year. It’s so great to also read about places that aren’t just for the masses. The hidden beaches and waterfalls look wonderful, as do the museums. Antalya is definitely somewhere I want to visit.

    I nearly booked a trip here earlier this year but opted to check out Cyprus instead. My wife loves her beaches and it looks like I need to take her here when she wants another beach holiday. The nearby mountains looks like I can some of my hiking done, love hiking and if I can get a day or two done whilst the wife is on the beach, then I be happy. 😀

    OMG, will have to add Antalya to my list, had no idea the beaches were so amazing! Hopefully the hidden beach in Cirali and ponds in Gazipas will still be untouched. Pataca reminds me of Ephesus which makes sense because both are in Turkey.

    WOW “stunning blue-flag beaches” for sure!! Antalya is gorgeous. It sounds like there is a lot of history and museums in the city. I would be most interested in the hidden waterfall, Tilkiler Cave and the natural ponds.

    I don’t like crowded beaches and resorts full of people. That’s why I haven’t been to Antalya before. Your article has changed my thinking. You showed me places I didn’t know.
    Hidden beaches, hidden natural ponds, and especially hidden waterfall and green lake attracted my attention. I love water photography and nature photography. So it’s a great guide! I will have to add Antalya to my list!

    You have pictured a different side of Antalya. I will love İnan Kıraç Kaleiçi Müzesi. I like to cover such places which are offbeat and not very famous. The beaches look so cool. Thank you for suggesting the ancient city of Simena.

    The whole place is filled with hidden gems. And the best part is that, you have a variety. From history to beaches and hidden caves – am all for discovering it. I am fascinated with the underwater city. Sure there might be some parts that you can spot above the water, but just wondering if scuba divers are privy to the under the water part . Thanks for adding this to my list of wonders
